Springhead Farm originating from a 1703 William Penn land grant, is a spectacular 62 acre property and elegant manor house dating back to the early 1800's. It is truly a one-of-a-kind estate property that most recently was the personal residence of renowned Philadelphia architect, Vincent Kling. A long sweeping, tree lined, entrance driveway leads to a courtyard entry to this magnificent stone manor house. The main house shows beautifully and features incredible original period details including: deep window sills, cut nail hardwood flooring, beautiful wainscoting and finish trim details, eight fireplaces, and outstanding views of the surrounding countryside. More recent additions include a fabulous family room with custom paneling, a large central fireplace, and a wall of windows with views and access to the garden area. A flexible floor plan on the 2nd floor allows for 5 or 6 bedrooms and includes 5 full baths. The main house even features the more recent addition of an elevator. There are numerous original out buildings on the property, including a 4 bedroom stone tenant house, a smoke house, spring house, root cellar, corn crib, and two barns including an outstanding equestrian area with 6 stalls, a tack room, and a half bath. One of the barns contains a terrific party/event room also. Stone patios, terraces, an in-ground pool, and a gazebo complete the exterior. The surrounding hillsides, vistas and panoramic views are absolutely stunning and seem to go on forever. Don't miss this exceptional once in a lifetime opportunity to own a true piece of Chester County history! Property is in Act 319, under conservancy, and is not sub-dividable.
